Thanks so much for that great link.

Yes I have the first blues album on vinyl. Plus the second album, the two record vinyl. One of my favorite songs of all time is on there
-- Broken Bone Blues.

Broken bone, bone, bone
I'll give my house away.
Broken bone, bone, bone
It was never mine anyway.
Broken bone O Buddha
Take my skull today....
..... or take back my skull someday.
Break, break, break,
O bones everywhere
Break, break, break,
O bones in the black air.

Farewell swift body dream
God bless me again...

Yes, to me Allen's music is among the poetic best, hitting to the heart of birth/death/existence.
